A sustainable material that looks and feels like wood, has the same versatility as wood in terms of processing and is as pliable as plastic – the essential features of SIMOWOOD made of Resysta®. The largesized sheets made of Resysta® are a real alternative to products made of wood. The polymer containing an eco-friendly filler that includes rice husks is extruded to create sheet products that are specially processed to look and feel like real wood. Compared to wood-based products used in this area, the moisture-resistant sheets do not swell when exposed to water, are weatherproof and offer the benefit of anti-slip properties when wet. This makes the material suitable not only for indoor but also for outdoor use – while also conserving valuable resources.
At BAU, SIMONA will also be presenting a specially developed product variant that meets International Maritime Organisation (IMO) specifications for low flammability. SIMOWOOD IMO fulfils the requirements for use as a material in bulkheads, walls, ceilings, linings and flooring within the commercial shipbuilding industry.
SIMONA® SIMOSHIELD encompasses a range of PVC-T sheets with a visible and palpable woodgrain finish. Developed specifically for the door manufacturing industry, they feature an IR-reflective decorative foil.
In SIMONA® SIMOFLOOR, SIMONA has developed a product designed specifically for flooring production. SIMOFLOOR is used as a core material on to which a vinyl surface is placed in laminate flooring. As the moisture-resistant material shows no signs of swelling when exposed to water, it is also perfect for damp-room applications.
The portfolio also includes products that are suitable for use in the fields of exhibition design and digital printing. This includes transparent materials such as SIMONA® PVC-GLAS and SIMOLUX as well as foamed sheets in the form of SIMOPOR, SIMONA® COPLAST-AS or SIMONA® PE FOAM.
